KristinSæterdal03About Kristin:

I make tapestries with motifs inspired by sci-fi scenography and computer games. I am searching to express archetypical human situations and states of mind. My works are commenting on different aspects of society today. For example: Is Technology our new religion? Can it save humanity from an environmental catastrophe? Tapestry is anti-superficial and anti-collage. The work is consistent all the way through; the front is identical to the back. It is constructed thread after thread by hand. It is a disciplinary process, but the discipline make room for creativity,  thought and meaning. Kristin Sæterdal (1963) graduated from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in 1988. She has since studied at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts and studied two years of tapestry at the Oslo University College.
